Surely you have ever imagined everything you could do if you were a billionaire, and we are not just talking about being rich, but about being the richest person in the whole world, surpassing people like Bill Gates or Elon Musk.
Well, an American became the richest person of all time for a short period of time, before losing everything a few seconds later, they remember from ladbible.
this happened to chris reynolds56 years old, who received a notification from PayPal one day in June 2013, entered his account, and discovered that his balance contained more than 92,000 billion dollars ($92,233,720,368,547,800), becoming at that time the most rich not only of the world, but also of all time.
This Delaware County man, in particular, was 1 million times richer than Carlos Slim, the $67 billion telecommunications magnate.
However, Reynolds already knew that it was a mistake, but he wanted to enjoy his moment, taking a screenshot, clarifying to the country’s media that the most he had had in PayPal “it had been a little over $1000 for some BMW tires he had sold on eBay”.
Evidently PayPal corrected the error just seconds later, and apologized to Reynolds himself.
However, the popular online payment service offered Reynolds himself to donate a financial amount to a charity of his choice as payment for the mishap.
What would I have bought with that money?
In an interview with the Philadelphia Daily News, Reynolds told the reporter that seeing those numbers in his PayPal account made him feel “like 1 million dollars”.
“It was a surprise”, he adds, admitting that he originally thought he owed the money or that it was a mistake.
In any case, the reporters asked him what he would have done with that money if he could have kept it, to which he replied that he would pay “all national debt” and that he would buy his favorite baseball team.
